The Return of the Corvette Grand Sport

We first heard about the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport in 1963. Built to dominate the racetrack, the Grand Sport was created from lightweight materials and packed a heavy punch with it’s 6.2L V8 engine.


Inspired by a legend, the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport roars onto the racetrack with the same spirit as the original model from fifty years ago. Providing incredible grip and handling on the track, the 2017 model features a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine capable of 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque! In order to deliver a high level of performance, no matter the conditions, the Grand Sport features a dry-sump oil system that consistently delivers oil flow.

The Choice is Yours

When you find the perfect Grand Sport, the choice is yours. Choose between a standard 7-speed manual or an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. By simulating heel-toe shifting, the 7-speed will enhance your driving experience. The 8-speed paddle-shift offers you the smooth control of quick precision on the road.



Every part of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport serves a purpose. Those wide fenders? They accommodate the wider tires which give the Grand Sport incredible grip, aerodynamics, airflow, and performance. With various color options and unique marks, you can really make the 2017 Grand Sport yours.


Under Pressure 

Unique to the 2017 Grand Sport, the mesh grille features brake-cooling intakes and a massive hood vent that maintains the performance of the engine during extreme driving. Keep yourself looking and feeling cool by taking advantage of the fully electronic convertible top – even while you’re driving!


Stay on track with the latest 2017 Grand Sport updates and vehicle specs.

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Camaro

Camaro wasn’t built in a generation. Each innovation has been the starting point for the next. Every milestone a green light for another. Generation Six is a culmination of everything before it. The fittest arrived, and this is its journey. – Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary site


It’s hard to believe that the Chevrolet Camaro is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year! First designed and manufactured under the code-name Panther, Chevrolet initially released the 1967 Camaro model as a competitor against the Ford Mustang. Taking on the Mustang, the 1967 model Camaro achieved 220,906 sales within it’s first year! In fact, when asked the meaning of the name Camaro, it is reported that many Chevrolet said “it was a small, vicious animal that ate Mustangs.”

Untitled design (4)

Over the generations, the Chevrolet Camaro has become a staple in the homes of sports car fanatics and Chevrolet lovers alike. While there have been distinct changes since the sixties, the Chevrolet Camaro has gotten better with age and has become the definition of performance and legendary.

Celebrate the Camaro by taking a look back at where we came from and taking the opportunity to see where we are headed. Trust us, we’re not stopping at legendary.


During our Big Tent Event, you could drive home the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was as low as $24,885 or lease from $229 per month. Offers end August 31, 2016.

Cool Air & Maximum Performance: 2017 Silverado Air Intake System

Do you use your Silverado for high-pressure situations at work? Do you like to maintain the masculine performance of your Silverado? A new standard feature for the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is the all-new patented air intake system. After undergoing extensive testing, built upon the most challenging driving conditions, the air intake system ensures the capable performance of the Silverado no matter the situation.


How does the air intake system work? Recognized for the signature dramatic hood scoop, the all-new intake system provides 60%  of air to the diesel engine from a space at the front of the hood. Closer to the temperature outside, and much cooler than the air under the hood, the intake system helps the Silverado HD perform better under pressure and in harsh weather conditions. Especially in situations where the temperature of the engine can rise extremely fast.

“The 2017 Silverado HD was engineered to provide maximum utility for our customers in even the most extreme situations . . . While developing this all-new induction system, we considered our customers towing a maximum-weight trailer through the Eisenhower Tunnel on a hot, rainy summer day.” – Eric Stanczak, Chief Engineer, Silverado HD


Expected to arrive in showrooms later in the fall of 2016, the Silverado HD air intake system will become your greatest asset when it comes to tough and high pressure working conditions.
